Johns Hopkins Hospital, Children’s Medical and Surgical Center (CMSC)
Johns Hopkins Health System built a $400 million, 12-story research tower at its East Baltimore medical campus to be opened by the spring of 2023. Part of the research tower took the place of the Brady Building, a seven-story structure that was demolished in 2021 to make way for the new project. Additional research space was created through the renovation of the Children’s Medical and Surgical Center (CMSC) building, a 1964 structure that has most recently housed labs and offices. The combined project will have 440,770 SF of new and renovated space, including 200,000 SF of research labs and related areas.
